Hollywood actor Scarlett Johanson’s acting in Black Widow was widely appreciated by fans and critics alike. Ahead of the 94th Academy Awards, Disney has championed Black Widow as well as Scarlett Johansson's performance as the super spy-der for Best Picture and Best Actress. According to Comic Book, Disney is confident that Black Widow is worthy of a number of nods at the Academy Awards this year.

For the unversed, Florence Pugh, Olga Kurylenko, and Rachel Weisz have been promoted for their performances for Best Supporting Actress, and David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt, and Ray Winstone have been promoted for Best Supporting Actor. The action film, which was released on July 9, traced the story of Natasha Romanoff from her past before she became an Avenger. The Scarlett Johansson-starrer was one of the first to make an impact at the box office, breaking numerous COVID-era records to earn close to $400 million at the box office. It also received positive reviews for its action sequences and performances.
